Testimonials

I met Asaf Blasberg just a few short months ago, in preparation for Paul Marinaro's debut concert at Birdland New York, I have been simply blown away by Asaf's professionalism, flexibility, and technical mastery, all aided greatly by his obvious love and knowledge of music.

We were in the process of making a film about Paul, and it was imperative that we get a truly professional recording of his performance for use in the film, as well as potential musical releases.

As a professional musician himself, and one very familiar with the Birdland venue, Asaf was the perfect choice. He immediately put us at ease with his comfortable style, knowledge and expertise.

When Paul requested separate audio tracks to ensure the best sound possible, Asaf creatively found a way to accomplish that, producing, in Paul's words "Fantastic" sound!

Asaf provided us with a two-camera filming and a multi-track audio recording from the venue's digital mixer, allowing maximum flexibility in producing films and audio tracks from the performance. As a bonus, he produced one complete clip with audio so that Paul could go up on Facebook almost immediately following the concert with a great clip for his fans who could not attend.

All in all, tremendous technical AND artistic work by Asaf.

Thanks Asaf!

I’m so glad Asaf was the first recommendation made by the venue I was about to perform at. I had to look no further! He was very professional, punctual and knowledgeable. As a fellow pianist, I didn’t have to worry about how he would capture the hands just right. He’s also very friendly and personable. It’s not often you find someone with all the traits I just mentioned. The final product was just what I had hoped for, and facilitated with great technical integrity. It’s a joy working with him and I’m already thinking about the next time. Asaf - thank you!

We surveyed a number of professional videographers in the New York City area to record my son’s piano recital upon his high school graduation. Asaf was our number one choice. He did such a masterful job with regards to video/audio recording, editing and Blu-ray Disc authoring. We are more than delighted to have chosen Asaf for our project.

A major reason for us to choose Asaf is his background in classical music training at Juilliard. His intimate familiarity with the music allows him to use his camera angles and zooms to highlight the key elements of the music, playing authoritatively and to accentuate the musicality artfully.

He brings this mastery to post-production - specifically with video and audio editing. In particular, he also accommodated an editing request from my son which might not go so smoothly with another videographer lacking in-depth classical music training.

We are highly impressed by Asaf’s professionalism. He genuinely wants to produce the best products for his clients, and is willing to do the extra work when necessary and without delay. He is punctual, responds promptly, and works hard.

Needless to say, his final product is of supreme quality! We will definitely use Asaf again when the occasion arises. If you are looking for a professional videographer to record your musical or any other performances, look no further!

Working with Asaf has been a true pleasure. Being a professional musician himself, he is truly sensitive to capturing every small nuance of the performance. His editing work is sublime and his overall work ethic and demeanor is efficient.

I have already recommended Asaf to so many of my colleagues and students who wish to have a video shoot of a very high quality.

Asaf’s work has been key to my success with The Liaisons Project, thanks to his lush and professional recordings of everything from work sample footage to full concerts. His unique combination of technical artistry and aesthetic perspective enabled me to create highly effective promotional and archival materials to share with grant panels, record labels and booking venues, all of whom have remarked on its excellent quality. Promotional and archival footage are two of the most important things an artist (or producer) can have, and Asaf’s work makes for the best of both!

I've had the pleasure of working with Asaf to capture my performances on two occasions, and both times the results were stellar and his skills and professionalism were absolutely top-notch. As a performer, you have so much to focus on so you generally cannot give much thought to things like video. Asaf slips right in and basically takes care of everything, even the things you haven't thought of. He has the knowledge of his craft to know every aspect of what is needed and just does it, without you even asking. He is excellent. I will definitely be using him again.

I was fortunate to have Asaf Blasberg author my Blu-ray and DVD project. His efficient and artistic manner was part of the pleasure of the process, and I was delighted when he agreed to invest in the equipment needed to meet my very high audio demands for authoring the concert video. When dealing with the manufacturing plant, Asaf took a direct, proactive stance in resolving several issues, and this resulted in making all my production deadlines. I will look forward to working with Asaf again, and I have already recommended his services to several other clients.

Asaf is reliable, trustworthy and prompt, and I am grateful for his passion and hard work in helping create this beautiful box set.

Asaf was amazing, professional and very knowledgeable. He was fast and dedicated, and very respectful of my needs for the videos. He was patient and he handled all my requests with utmost care. He has a great artistic eye and takes initiative. He made the process much easier and enjoyable for me, as I did not have to worry about anything during and after my concert. He gave me a brilliant finished product. I look forward to having Asaf collaborate with me in the future. Thank you!

I found Asaf by chance online when a friend who was supposed to film our concert suddenly had to cancel. From the very first contact he was quick, smart, accommodating and professional.

His work has been considerate and of high quality. As a classical musician it meant so much to me that Asaf is himself a musician and has a deep understanding and sensitivity about what it means to film and record a concert.

I knew that I could trust his instincts and that we spoke the same language and that he could understand my requests. In my experience it's a real skill to be able to film a concert and I am really grateful to have found Asaf. I'm very happy with the work he did for us and look forward to working with him again in the future!

Asaf Blasberg's videography captured the integrity of my musical performance. His judicious choices of perspective and lighting fit the mood of the music and the sound quality was superior. His advantage lies in his experience as an accomplished classical musician; his familiarity with repertoire and understanding of musicians' movements contributes to effective videography.

Dear Asaf,

Thank you for making Living Legacies Video a success. I truly appreciate your professionalism, attention to detail, and your sincerity. Looking forward to working together again. Many thanks.

Asaf's videography work is fantastic. The recordings are clear, and clean with excellent sound quality. His work allows true artistry and creativity to shine, and as an artist you can be assured that everyone will see the performance exactly as it was. Watching his work, you feel as though you are sitting right there in the audience, since the work is so refined and well-crafted.

I've tried to cut corners and have friends and family shoot videos, but there is no comparison. Asaf offers something truly great at an affordable price. He not only does good work, but he is encouraging and easy to work with. Musicians! Look no further. This is a true artist with video - and as a musician he knows exactly how we want to be represented on the internet. I will definitely use him again next time I need a show recorded, and I will encourage others to work with him as well!

I can't say enough about how wonderful Asaf is to work with, as well as seriously talented at bringing out the best a performer has to give. He is organized, speedy, prompt, and well-priced -- In fact, I'm so happy he stayed on me because with anyone else, it probably would have taken a full month to get the clips up, and same with me knowing how busy I am. With Asaf, it's within 2 days! He is sensitive as to when to pan in and out, showcase my band or just me, and edits beautifully. I'm so grateful for his work, and know I have gotten other gigs because of the artistry behind the clips he's done for me. Looking forward to working with him again!

Asaf's communication is quick, effective and clear. He is more than willing to explain his scope of services and cater a unique plan to suit your needs. And in our instance, he was able to turn around a clip for a large scale touring application within a matter of hours. I would highly recommend Asaf for those who want high quality and very affordable video that can be used for a multiple of purposes.

Working with Asaf Blasberg is a joy because he is extremely efficient and really goes the extra mile to make sure you are happy. Also, because he is a pianist himself, he has a high degree of familiarity with the piano repertoire, and therefore has a lot of helpful experience and knowledge to offer when working with him. I highly recommend his services and hope to use his services again in the future.

Asaf Blasberg was very personable and quick to respond. He puts performers at ease. He uses high quality equipment that he knows how to use… I could sing and not worry about the rest. He’s definitely a problem solver and provided good explanations as we worked through different aspects of the project. I would definitely work with him again.

Dance Conservatory Performance Project hired Asaf Blasberg to videotape our annual spring gala at Symphony Space's Peter Norton Theater. The lighting can be very challenging, as our various choreographers have different requirements. Asaf took it in stride and delivered, a few days later, within deadlines, the exact perfect master DVD we needed. It was the first time we worked together: Asaf was very good at listening to our concerns and taking them into account, from taping to inserting chapters and text on the DVD. This may very well be the beginning of a long and mutually fruitful business collaboration between Asaf Blasberg and DCPP. Thank you Asaf, see you in December at Symphony Space, for our Nutcracker!

Asaf Blasberg is a master of his trade. He is both hard working and a pleasure to work with. I would absolutely work again with him, as well as recommend him to my colleagues in the future.

Asaf Blasberg seems to have a third eye that enables him to capture not just the crystal-clear image but the unseen spirit of a live event-- not an easy trick for even the skilled videographer. His work is technically superb. I recommend him highly.

Mark N. Grant
Composer

Good camerawork is often taken for granted in classical music footage. Mr. Blasberg is an artist with the camera, improvising a visual plan that complements the music beautifully, adding drama to the listening experience. I would recommend him to anyone who is seeking to make a professional-level document of his or her playing--at an affordable price. He is very attentive to detail, organized to make best use out of studio time, and his deep knowledge of music sets him apart from other videographers I have worked with. I would definitely work with Mr. Blasberg again for my next video recording.

Totally superior professional quality on the highest level. Many thanks to Asaf Blasberg!

Asaf Blasberg has done a marvelous job creating the performance video of the Park Avenue Chamber Symphony's latest concert. He is a perfectionist and does what is necessary to complete the project on time with a high standard of work product. I look forward to working with him again on future projects.

I first became acquainted with the sterling talents of Asaf Blasberg when I brought to them a project that had been already shot and needed touches of editing and final production assistance. Asaf Blasberg proved that he combines the imagination, insight, technical know-how, and uniquely qualified musical depth to transform our initial shooting to a professional and transfixing final product. The quality of the editing was excellent.

I was impressed with Asaf's professionalism, reliability, flexibility, and speed. Asaf's team exceeded our expectations and I am extremely pleased with the final results. I would be delighted to speak to anybody who might want to hear about my experiences first hand. Asaf was very responsive to our needs and I am grateful as much as I stand in admiration of his talents and professionalism.
